|First Aid Facilities||Recommended: Eye wash. Hand wash basin.|
|Advice to Doctor||Treat symptomatically. Contact Poisons Information Centre.|
|5. Fire-fighting measures|
|Suitable extinguishing media||Water, or as for other chemicals present.|
|Unsuitable Extinguishing Media||M|
|Hazards from Combustion Products||Decomposes on heating emitting soot, smoke and decomposition products.|
|Specific Methods||In case of small fire/explosion use water. In case of major emergency use PPE: breathing apparatus and protective gloves.|
|Specific hazards arising from the chemical||This material is not a combustible or flammable solid. However, under certain conditions this material, if sufficiently distributed in air and a suitable source of ignition is present, may cause a dust explosion.|
|Precautions in connection with Fire||M|
|6. Accidental release measures|
|Spills & Disposal||Avoid generating dusts. Wear suitable protective equipment. Ventilate area. If possible wet area down to prevent high dust levels. If available, use dustless methods, such as a HEPA vacuum and filter. Otherwise, use a non-sparking shovel and place into a suitably labeled container for later disposal. Do not dry sweep|
|7. Handling and storage|
|Precautions for Safe Handling||M|
|Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities||Store in a dry, well ventilated place, out of reach of children. Store in original container. Keep container closed. Keep away from acids. Keep away from oxidising agents. Protect from physical damage. Clean up all spills promptly; avoid secondary accidents.|
|8. Exposure controls/personal protection|
|Biological Limit Values||M|
|Appropriate engineering controls||Good industrial hygiene practice requires that employee exposure be maintained below the recommended TLV/TWA. This is preferably achieved through the provision of adequate ventilation where necessary. Where dust cannot be controlled in this way, personal respiratory protection should be employed.|
|Personal Protective Equipment||Avoid contact with the skin and eyes. Avoid breathing the dust. Personal protection to be selected from those recommended below, as appropriate to mode of use, quantity handled and degree of hazard:-|
Face shield or safety glasses
Gloves, rubber or plastic
The use of a respirator is not normally required, however, if high dust levels are present, then the use of a suitable dust mask or half-face respirator with a P1 filter is recommended. All respirators must comply with AS/NZS 1715 and AS/NZS 1716.
Always maintain a high level of personal hygiene when using cleaning chemicals. That is wash hands before eating, drinking, smoking or using the toilet.
